Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #207...

I mostly got out of the 3" Smith & Wesson N-frame game except for this Mag-Na-Ported Model 629-1. It felt wrong to not have a .44 Magnum revolver of some sort around the house, and this one's a pretty cool example of the breed.

The pre-"Endurance Package" lockwork precludes the use of heavy loads ("Whee! My cylinder's turning backwards!") but who wants to shoot Elmer Keith Memorial Rhino-Rollers out of a 3" tube anyway? If you can't do it with a 240gr projectile at eleven or twelve hundred feet a second, you need to go get a long gun, not a bigger revolver.
